    "BRATTY, BRASSY, AND BRAVE!" Following in the steps of a Naval legend can't be easy. The author's anecdotes reveal the toll it takes being a child of a hero. The childhood descriptions of life in Opp, Alabama are wonderful--the food, the smells, the freedom. Watching a free spirit being shaped into someone else's mold isn't. The high school high jinks at base schools in the Western Pacific go on a bit too long for my tastes...but it's plenty naughty. Auburn University must have been fun. The chapter on Naval aviator school, the inside jokes, the danger, the ambivalence is all very interesting. It was a different time and a different place. Families take many forms and this book showed me how Miller and his buddies formed their own close knit groups as places and times changed. The book is lavishly illustrated by photographs taken by Miller himself. . .perhaps to save himself. I'm glad Miller became an pilot in the 1960's. I'm thankful for the old workhorse, the Spad. I'm... More > glad people still serve their country. I am sorry that we did not meet on neutral sail. The Vietnam War continues to haunt the men and women who fought it, and the lost loves they left behind.< Less
